Team Tighten TEN Club

It's a cup of coffee a few times a month, a fast food lunch or a few candy bars from the snack machine now and then that you could live without...BUT for someone who is paralyzed, $10 a month over a year's time is an hour and a half of HOPE. This covers specialized therapy to help get them on their feet again, helps to sponsor them in adaptive outdoor activities that they can safely enjoy and pays for a medical assistive devices that they need to make life a little easier. 

Let's see what the impact is when everyone joins together to LIFT...

$100/mth x 12 mths =$1200/yr = 15 Hours of Therapy or Tuition for 3 Adaptive Activities
